Harvest

Harvest

By Mary Branson

Harvest is a site-specific intervention on farmland beneath Box Hill during September 2018. In developing this project, Mary Branson explored the relationship of the local farming community to the land, the processes and rituals of harvest time and the impact of the changing climate on their work. Harvest is an illuminated artwork highlighting some of the unseen work that goes into shaping the landscape that is often taken for granted.

Our changing climate has had a particularly damaging result on farming this year with the drought causing a much reduced crop of hay at Box Hill Farm. Mary Branson’s installation features sixty six ‘invisible’ bales – illuminated outlines, the dimensions of hay bales, arranged in the same formation used in farming across the lower field.

‘It’s a rare privilege to be able to create an art work for such a beautiful location as Lower Box Hill Farm. Observing the fields harvest cycle has been a real eye opener, seeing the delicate balance faced each season with the increasingly extreme weather conditions. This is the story that has shaped my installation’.

– Mary Branson, 2018.

It is with great excitement that the team at York Road Project wish to invite you to attend our annual sponsored Sleep Out event!

This years event takes place on Saturday the 29th September with all proceeds going towards supporting those struggling with homelessness in Woking.

We are also very proud to announce that as this year’s Mayors Charity we will have the pleasure of Mayor Will Forster attending as well.

This year we are hosting the event again but with a twist, we are inviting young adults of age 13 and above to join us as well.

The aim is to really bring to life the experiences of homelessness in Woking and using that knowledge to help more people affected.

So this is where you our colleagues, supporters and friends can get involved…

Firstly we would love some of you to join us on the night, help us raise both awareness and sponsorship, if you are interested then attached is the registration form and instructions.

Please do send it back to me when you are done.

If you sadly can’t make it then please don’t worry as you can still support this fantastic cause by sponsoring a member of the team to take part!

The staff team will be taking part as well, with all our hours worked for the event being given up free as part of our donation to the charity, yes we as a staff team believe and support YRP that much!

Finally please can I ask that you share the info with any of your friends and colleagues to help us get the word out as much as possible.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or Cherisse Dealtry and we will do our best to help you.

As always thank you all on behalf of all our clients as without you the work that we do just would not be possible!
